What are STDs?

STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) are infections that a person can get from having sex with someone who has a STD.

How do I know if I have a STD?

Some STDs don't have symptoms, so a person could have one and not know it.

Basically, if you have sex, you can get an STD.

Get a check up right away if you, or your partner, have any of the following symptoms:

  • Pain or burning while peeing

  • Sores, warts, blisters, swellings, growths, or a rash on or around the penis, vagina, or anus (these may or may not be painful)

  • A bad discharge or a strange smell from the vagina or penis

  • Burning, pain, or itching around the vagina, penis, or anus.

How do they test for STDs?

Testing for STDs can be as easy as peeing in a cup. For some women, the practitioner may need to do a pelvic exam to be able to tell if they have a STD.

Some infections are treatable the same day that you are tested. Others require tests that might take a few weeks to get results.

If you are positive for a STD, then you might be able to be treated right at our clinic by people you know and trust.
